This week, I’m discussing the logistics of taking out an Amazon loan or any loan to grow your business. When we’re at a conference or when we take calls from current or prospective clients, we’re often asked for advice concerning loans. So today I’ll share my insights about what adding debt could mean to you in your e-commerce business.

 

Amazon takes grit it is not a get rich quick scheme.

 

Today’s Topic Covers:

  • Will an Amazon loan help your business grow – do you really need more capital?
  • How to use an Amazon profit calculator to find out what your numbers mean.
  • What kind of income do you need to satisfy your lifestyle?
  • What the common motivations are in considering taking out a loan.
  • History of shipping times.
  • What are the most stressful months in terms of sales?
  • Pricing strategy.

 

 

3 Quick Tips for New Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Sellers:

  1. Focus on the actions that move you towards your original goal – don’t forget the reason why you started your venture!
  2. Don’t get caught up on what other sellers are doing, everyone’s end game is different.
  3. If you are a wholesaler, don’t delay, place your orders today!

This week, I’m at the PubCon Convention. This convention is filled with tons of great information and content! If you haven’t been in the past, I highly recommend you attend next year’s event. Today, though, I want to share with you some of the information that I have learned from the convention, specifically in regards to the future of SEO.

 

When people search on Amazon, they have an intent to buy or an intent to research to buy.

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • New sellers on Amazon may not be able to sell on Amazon FBA; however, Merchant Fulfilled is still an option.
  • Is the future of search and SEO segmented and how could it affect your business?
  • Disqualifying bad wholesale leads and unqualified buyers.
  • Providing content to create brand affinity.

 

3 Quick Tips for New Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Sellers:

  1. Have the box ready before you make the item available for shipping.
  2. Always assume the worst case scenario. Calculate shipping cost based off the farthest distance you think it will go and include the weight of the packaging materials.
  3. Be selective in the products you carry to avoid pricing wars.

Amazon recently announced their list of key holiday dates for 2016. This list really should have been titled “Christmas in November” because essentially that’s what it is. In previous years – like when I first started selling on Amazon – you could submit a ticket on the items you submitted if they weren’t checked into Amazon. This year, they’ve increased that time to 14 days. Previously, they wanted Black Friday and Christmas inventory set in no later than a week before the holiday date. However, this year, they’ve changed those dates: Black Friday items need to be in by November 9, and Christmas items need to be in by December 12.

A lot of changes have happened on the Amazon platform over the years, and more are likely to come over the next several years. The important thing is to never allow these changes to cause your business to hit the brakes! On today’s episode, we’re going to talk about this year’s Q4 changes, what you need to do to prepare for the Christmas in November season, and how to plan your inventory buying and selling strategies so they carry you through Q4 and straight into Q1.

 

“The way you play the next 4 weeks will really determine what profitability you have this Q4 season.” – Robyn Johnson

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Using the “check in period” as a barometer to predict when you need to send in your inventory.
  • Keeping track of your buying and shipping goals.
  • Sending in small amounts of inventory, gradually increasing over time, to maximize efficiency and mitigate high Q4 storage fees.
  • Keeping your inventory quick and nimble at Amazon.
  • Multi-channel selling strategies and new-to-market brand items.
  • Considering “musical warehouse” issues
  • Sending to a distribution warehouse shortens your Q4 season.
  • Box level content can buy you approximately 8 extra days of the Christmas season.
  • Amazon shipping breaks and dimensional weight.
  • Planning your sale items – what should you consider selling?
  • Doing your homework – use a rolling 13-week cash flow and calculating your debt to income ratio.
  • Amazon loans and how to use that money wisely.
  • Selling velocity differences from December to January and how to plan your inventory to carry you into Q1.
  • Finding people that can help hold you accountable and focused on your goals.
  • Having a weekly strategic buying and shipping plan and what rules you will follow.
  • Asking for help – people want to contribute to you!

We are heading strong into the Q4 season right now. This is the time when many Amazon entrepreneurs experience something called Imposter Syndrome – the feeling of not being good enough; of feeling like everyone around you views you as more successful or more of an expert than you really feel. 

If you’ve ever felt like other people see you in a certain way but you still feel like you don’t have a firm handle on things – you know what I’m talking about. But, you know, other people’s opinions and perceptions of us often change faster than we anticipate! 

Today, I want to explain to you why you should stop viewing your level of success based on your gross sales every day, week, month, or year. You are worth more than your financial success. 

 

“Your self-worth and your business success is not necessarily tied to the amount in your bank account.” – Robyn Johnson 

 

Today’s Topics Cover: 

  • How do you identify your self-worth and your rate of success? 
  • The moment when you are waiting to see your hard work payoff is a really scary time.  
  • You have to realize that with or without your business results – you still have worth! 
  • The fact that you are willing to put yourself out there says something about who you are as a person. 
  • Repeat after me: I am not an imposter. I am enough. I am just on a journey like everyone else. 
  • Sometimes – especially when you feel like you’re not holding it all together – you simply have to let your team and staff run. 
  • Find ways to get out of your head – take a walk, take deep breaths, do whatever it takes to get out of those negative thoughts. 
  • It is really easy to get caught up in the money and lose sight of why you started your business in the first place. Take a step back, take a breath, and regroup. 
  • Focus your goals around profit and the kind of life you want. Not around gross sales. 
  • Stop comparing your successes and your business successes to others. 
  • You always have to have something in life worth failing at. Your business is worth failing and the only way you can grow is through failure. Brush yourself off and get back on the horse. 
  • The way you frame and talk about your business is going to be the way you view things. 
  • The way you hold yourself and your business is incredibly important! Don’t listen to your own negative thoughts. They limit your ability. Listen to the people in your life that think you are amazing because they probably have a more objective point of view. 
  • Embrace failure. It’s like fertilizer – it stinks, but it’s necessary to grow.
